It’s tempting to toss little bits of leftovers. They don’t seem worth the time it takes find a container (and its lid), transfer the leftovers, and then find a place for the container in a (usually) overcrowded frig. But those little bits can be healthy diet savers. E.g., you come home after work starving. Instead of digging in to expensive and not-so-good-for-you snack foods, microwave the leftovers and get some real food satisfaction, plus valuable nutrition.
Case in point: I had a little leftover curry the other night–not enough for a full meal, but I stowed it anyway. The next morning I got up for an early hike and Farmers’ Market visit and needed something to tide me over until I could get back. What a pleasant surprise to open the frig and discover my little bowl of vegetable-rich curry. Perfect!
